Electronics and Communication

Upper left: Hy-Gain Two-Way Radio, 1976, Lincoln.

Manufacturing at Leuck Radio During World War II the Army Signal Corps approached Louis Francis Leuck about running a laboratory to make radio transmission crystals. Leuck Crystal Labs of Lincoln was formed as a result. The entire output of the company during the war years went to the U.S. government. After the war the company became Leuck Radio Supply, which sold radios and radio repair parts, sound, communications, and recording equipment.
